Phosphorus is essential for food production, however its use is not without implications. Attention to sustainable phosphorus use is no longer solely focused on reducing detrimental environmental impacts, but also explicitly linked to food security. That is, sustainable phosphorus use must ensure that all the world's farmers have sufficient access to phosphorus in the long run to produce enough food humanity, whilst minmizing adverse environmental and social impacts.
